Two more resources that may be useful come from the HCLS and Science  
Commons communities. See http://tinyurl.com/y5tmud and  

Interestingly, these resources are not thrilled with LSIDs, nor with  
the 303 redirect solution to the problem of distinguishing between a  
thing and an information resource.

I wonder if TDWG should enage with these communities because they are  
dealing with similar issues -- and are making progress.
